Hi guys and happy Sunday. Got any plans? I’m just gonna stay in, and read some today. Last week I was approached by a lovely girl who works at Farfetch. She has been inviting bloggers around the world to take part in a ‘competition’ where we are to let our readers know about Farfetch’s new beauty section and to show what our current beauty bag consists of. By posting this I don’t actually get anything, but I do have a chance to win a gift card, which would be pretty swell.
What’s in my beauty bag?
It’s honestly kinda hard to decide which products to say are my essentials because it depends a lot on my mood. Plus I also try to use new things once in a while. But most of these items I have been using the past couple of weeks and I am LOVING them. Actually, some I have been using for almost a year. It’s a little mix of both but they are amongst my favorite ?
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz £13.50
Ever since I got my hands on this baby last summer it has been my go-to eyebrow pencil. I used Bobbi Brown’s Brow Kit before that, and don’t get me wrong it is good, but this Brow Wiz is just better! I get the hype. I use the shade medium brown.
Shu Uemura Eyelash curler £20
I bought this last year in April when I was with my mom in London. And I have used it almost everyday since I got it. It’s definitely one of my essentials because some days I just use this, instead of mascara, when I want a more ‘natural/naked’ look.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick £14
This liquid lipstick is currently my favorite and I’ve worn it a lot! Kat Von D recently launched in Sephora Denmark which is when I bought the shade Lolita II. It’s such a perfect ‘dark nude’ shade.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation £27
This has become my absolute favorite foundation! It applies incredibly well and it has such a nice finish. I have repurchased this a few times already.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer £17.50
This concealer is not my favorite under eye concealer but it’s great for blemishes and it goes very well with the foundation (which makes sense since it’s from the same brand). I love the consistency of it though and it’s really easy to work with.
Lancôme Juicy Shaker £18
I bought this on a whim because it looked fun. I love the sponge applicator, the smell is wonderful and I do feel like they somehow help my lips. I have the shade ‘Berry In Love’, I would love to try other colors too. I’ve been using it on days I don’t use Lolita II.
Dior Nail Varnish £19
I think I have a thing for blue nails this season (I may have bought three different blues), and this Bleuette is really nice and spring-like! I have been switching between my three blue shades, but decided to feature this one here.
Elizabeth Arden Superstart £45
This is one of the new better products I have invested in. It’s meant to ‘boost’ your skin so your other skincare products are more effective. I genuinely feel like it has made a difference. Definitely repurchasing it!
Sunday Riley Good Genes £85
This is one of the most expensive skincare products I have but it’s one of the best things ever. I started using this last summer and I have been love love loving it. I don’t use it as a mask, I prefer to use it daily in small amounts.
Kate Spade Makeup bag
I bought this bag last summer in the states. I usually use it as a travel makeup bag but lately I’ve been switching between this and my Louis Vuitton makeup bag. There’s just something about this floral bag I love!
What is FarFetch?
At first when I read the email from Farfetch I wasn’t sure what to think. I had actually never heard of it before… So, I decided to do a little google research. And as it turns out I must’ve lived under a rock because FarFetch has actually been around since 2008 and has many customers (they have even been mentioned in The New York Times). Farfetch has a really cool concept. They have basically collaborated with a lot of smaller independent stores (but also bigger stores) and put all of the various stores items into Farfetch. That way you can get a lot of Items from all over the world. I asked the girl who emailed me how it works with taxes/customs and she explained to me that it depends on where you live and which items you order. E.g. If I order something from a small store in Italy through Farfetch I won’t have any extra taxes since it’s within the EU, but if I lived in the states I would have a large fee coming my way. But because they have offices all over the world there should be something for everyone!
Until now Farfetch has never had a beauty section! And since I love myself some beauty products I can totally get behind the fact that they have decided to invest in such a section. What I am personally most excited about in their new beauty section is the fact that they have partnered with SpaceNK, which has one of my favorite brands Sunday Riley. I would also really like to try Lipstick Queen’s lipsticks and the french brand Chantecaille! There’s quite a few products I would love to get my hands on to be honest, here’s my little mini wishlist:
Have anyone of you tried any of these above products? Are they good?
Let me know in the comments, I would love to hear your opinions 🙂
Have a lovely day! x
